Apologetics 301 Guidelines

If you think this is the area where you tell everyone you are sorry for eating their lunch out of the fridge, it probably isn't the place for you


This forum is open discussion between atheists and all theists to defend and debate their views on religion or non-religion. Please respect that this is a Christian-owned forum and refrain from gratuitous blasphemy. VERY wide leeway is given in range of expression and allowable behavior as compared to other areas of the forum, and moderation is not overly involved unless necessary. Please keep this in mind. Atheists who wish to interact with theists in a way that does not seek to undermine theistic faith may participate in the World Religions Department. Non-debate question and answers and mild and less confrontational discussions can take place in General Theistics.

    "Chuck" has a very vivid imagination!

    Tiberius and Claudius have had a fairly bad press as well. The Julio-Claudians - IOW, Augustus to Nero inclusive - are the Caesars usually picked on as unstable.

    Severe sarcasm noted and possible cynicism toward Bart. I live nearby too and actually know him. He is a well respected scholar.

    You're thinking of WL Craig wittering on about physics when he's unqualified to do so, he's a philosopher/theologian, whereas even Dr Ehrman's "pop-level" books are still within his area of expertise

    When your conclusions are assumed as fact and set in adamantine, like they are here, interacting with you gets tiresome fast.
    Talk about ironic.

    No, not dead people, but a risen Lord.

    Tassy, if you have anything to contribute on topic, please feel free - otherwise, take your anti-Christian bigotry elsewhere.

    Fundy atheists sure remind me of a Chronicles of Narnia villain!

    No, he won the debate by virtue of his detailed factual arguments. The impressive list of Dr. Ehrman’s credentials was in response One Bad Pig's nonsensical: “He should stick to fields in which he's actually qualified”. He did.

    Dr Bart Ehrman is a “New Testament scholar focusing on textual criticism of the New Testament, the historical Jesus, the origins and development of early Christianity. He has written and edited 30 books, including three college textbooks. He has also authored six New York Times bestsellers. He is currently the James A. Gray Distinguished Professor of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill”. Wiki.
